Meet the faces : Asaf Berman

Asaf Berman is now a fourth-year student in the Elite Military Medicine Track, a joint program of the Faculty of Medicine, IDF and Ministry of Defense.

Unusual for Israel, he began his studies at age 18, is undergoing six years of MD studies — including special courses such as aviation medicine, battlefield wounds and operational military medicine, which will be followed by a one-year internship and five years’ military service.

“We live and eat together, spend our summers in basic training and we’ve become best friends,” says Berman who helped treat wounded soldiers at Soroka Hospital’s Trauma Unit during Operation Protective Edge in summer 2014.

“Having been exposed to actual war injuries, I am keen to do my service with a combat unit.”
